Tank Removal (18,000 Litre)

Client: RemedX Ltd
Project: Parker Hannifin, Bracknell Lane
Value: £72,795

Brief Description:

KpH was invited to tender on a Manufacturing site in Somerset, which had a range of aboveground diesel and mineral oil tanks. These varied from 3,500ltrs to 27,000ltrs and required cleaning, degassing and removing. There was also an underground vessel which was in poor condition and required to be removed with a new aboveground tank utilised instead.

Existing drainage around the main tank farm and lubricant storage was also in a poor state and posing an environmental risk to the company. This was to be removed extended and re-instated.

 Scope of Works:

KpH mobilised with a fully trained team of confined space tanks cleaners, site supervisor, CPCS machine plant operators, set to carry out all the elements of the project.

Once all the above ground tanks were cleaned, degassed and fragmented, the waste material was removed to a licenced facility with all waste tickets handed over to the client.

All new pipework was installed to allow the vessel to be commissioned as soon as possible to allowing the client access to start using it.

KpH went onto install the new aboveground 3.500ltr diesel tank with a new pipe in pipe feed line to the emergency generator.

The belowground tank was broken over and exposed along with the surrounding area and drainage runs.

Once the made up ground was exposed it was found to have hydrocarbon contamination, which was analysed by the onsite consultant. A remediation strategy was put in place to remove the contamination and back fill with an imported certificated type 1 material.

The concrete slab was re-instated along with the site drainage. The project was signed off and the site was handed over to the client.
